The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has approved BP (NYSE:BP) to use an FPSO and subsea export pipeline to develop the Skarv field in the Norwegian Sea.

BP has secured consent to use the Skarv FPSO production facility with associated pipeline systems and umbilicals, as well as the gas export pipeline, on the Skarv field. 

Skarv is located about 35 kilometers southwest of the Norne field in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea. The development is a unitisation of the 6507/5-1 Skarv and 6507/3-3 Idun deposits

Skarv is being developed with an FPSO, with well templates on the seabed. The field is expected to start production in 2011. 

The Skarv Gas Export Pipeline (GEP) transports gas from the FPSO to Gassled Area B, the Åsgard Transportation System (ÅTS) pipeline and onward to Northern European markets via the Gassled Area C and D systems.

BP serves as the operator with 23.84 percent interest. Project partners include E.ON with 28.08 percent, PGNiG with 11.92 percent and Statoil with 36.16 percent.
